More Windows exploits posted online

Two new pieces of computer code that could be used in cyber attacks on Windows users were posted on the web on Wednesday and Thursday.

The exploit posted on Thursday is another that could allow a remote attacker to gain complete control over a vulnerable computer. The code takes advantage of a flaw in a Windows component for transaction processing, called the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator. Microsoft addressed the flaw in security bulletin MS05-051 in October.
